The appointment and approval of 7 active military soldiers to Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) has continued to cause intense reactions from leaders.

The Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen is the latest man to censure the move taken by the government.

During the Senate proceeding on Tuesday, Murkomen said that the move has denied Nairobians of their freedom.

“I want to remain consistent. The militarization of a civilian government in a county government is the worst form of violation and overturn of our constitution,” Murkomen added

“What the hell is happening in this country … the authority of the Senate and the authority of the Parliament must be restored. National Assembly must be restored,” he said.

The top Kenya Defence Forces body (Kenya Defence Council) approved military officers joining NMS which was created in March following an agreement between Governor Mike Sonko and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
